Insurtech Start-up “mobinco”, Berlin

mobinco (acquired by insinno) develops new possibilities for brokers in the areas of digital customer interaction and automated customer service.
Emotionally-charged short-term insurance products, such as smartphone or travel insurance are particularly suitable and allow for a greatly extended customer reach. This combination of online and offline delivers the best of both worlds: Online sales reduces costs and at the same time promotes the interaction between customer and broker by providing them with new opportunities to engage with the customer in the stationary sales of high-commission contracts. This gives the brokers the opportunity to trigger positive memories with the customer time and again.
